Cole teased the release of the ‘The Off-Season’ album a few days ago, the announcement gained lots of tractions than J. Cole himself probably expected.
Just yesterday, Real decided to break his own rules, after he had previously promised to release the all album at once. As he announced that he was going to drop the track “Interlude” by 12 o’clock, off the Off-Season collection.
Lines from the “Interlude” lyrics had J. Cole liken Nipsey Hussle and Pimp C to Christ, reiterating them as the Messiah of rap music.
“Christ went to heaven at age 33, so did Pimp C and so did Nipsey”
As a celebration of the 14-year anniversary of his debut mixtape, “The Come Up.” J. Cole announced the new album was made as an offering to his years in the making. With an abstract effect, the cover art of both the song and the album looks identical. The only difference is that the cover art of “Interlude” was taken adjacent his position in the cover art of ‘The Off-Season’ album. Backing the initial burning basketball hoop which created a silohuete effect. Probably a symbolism of the juxtaposition of the current state of his career which he had once referred to as the “fire that was once dying out.”
